Exclusive Giveaway for The Inland Sea in partnership with The Book Slut

Posted 25th Feb 2020

In January of the year I left Sydney I became afraid of walking too close to the gutter and the cars that veered around corners too quickly. I was afraid of cyclists, people in tracksuits by traffic lights, afraid of staircases and lit cigarettes and power lines. I was afraid of men. I was afraid of just about everything.

During her last year in Sydney, a young woman is reeling from her own self-destructive obsessions – drinking heavily, sleeping with strangers, wandering Sydney’s dangerous streets late at night, and navigating an affair with an ex-lover. She works as an emergency-dispatch operator, tracking the violence, floods and fires that bloom and rage across Australia during an increasingly unstable year. Reckless and adrift, she prepares to leave.

Written with down-to-earth lucidity and ethereal breeziness, The Inland Sea explores feminine fear, apathy, danger and longing, against a backdrop of ecological and personal crisis.

Madeleine Watts is the vital new voice in climate fiction. To celebrate the release of this darkly enchanting novel, Pushkin have teamed up with worldwide book collective, The Book Slut to offer a fantastic prize giveaway.
